This is a blistering version of this Joe South song which was a hit in America for The Osmonds. It was originally on Cilla's 1968 album 'Sheroo'. You can hear it on on CD on Cilla's 'Cilla In The 60's'. Cilla's version of this is brilliant, she really gets going and gives it everything.

This is a great version of the song from 'Hair', when I first bought the Cilla album from which this came, this for me was intially the stand-out track. Its a very powerful version and Cilla really does justice to it.

Lots of Cilla's earlier material was top quality, this Lennon/McCartney song (never actually recorded by the Fabs) knocked me out when I first heard it on my cousin's Dansette in 1964. Spooky melody which almost strays into jazz territory in the instrumental break. Sophisticated pop of the highest order.
great song. because it starts off in a relaxed easy listening mood, the big paul mccartney chorus caught me completely offguard on first listen. Hasnīt left my playlist since...the demo version is superb, too.

I agree, her demo version is also good or am I thinking of the bossa style version she did?
